Kamchàtka

Alter

creation 2021

Alter, a journey into the heart of the night in search of our humanity, immersed in surrealism, the absurd, heading towards hope. A moment to share fragments of memories, flashes of life, pain, fragility and intimate follies.

An experience which is intimately linked to the landscape and to interaction with the public. A nighttime outing transformed into an exodus, a journey in which memories are but the first building blocks of a collective future that is steeped in uncertainty.

Kamchàtka is an artist collective of diverse nationalities and disciplines who’s members first met in Barcelona in 2006. Driven by the same interests and concerns and under the artistic direction of Adrian Schvarzstein, they started training intensely in group improvisation on the streets of Barcelona and researched the subject of immigration. Barcelona… an ideal city for confronting a society laden with contradictions and immersed in profound problems of integration.

Since 2007, they have created their own poetic language around a trilogy on human migration - Kamchàtka (2007), Habitaculum (2010) and Fugit (2014) and have been performing in 27 different countries in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
Their latest creation Alter (2021) is a site specific performance which is intimately linked to the landscape and to interaction with the audience.
The company also offers the Migrar workshop, a unique human experience around the Kamchàtka performance, for the inhabitants of your city, as well as an indoor production with a Symphony Orchestra of your choice - Music for wild beasts - an approach to classical music for all audiences.
